Bluejuice are announcing they are calling it quits at the end of 2014. With three acclaimed records and countless formidable live shows under their belts, the band have decided to take a peek at what exists on the other side of the velvet curtain, to work on new things, and to hopefully wear their sequined leotards less often. Bluejuice timidly arrived on the music scene in 2001, and have been defiantly (though not necessarily deliberately) unfashionable ever since. Their work ethic, pop nous and unapologetic inclination to yell straight into your face have made them difficult to ignore. With loads of radio (their track Vitriol still holds the position of the most played song on triple j) and festival conquests, they shall leave behind a body of work of which they are all very proud, and they look to the future with a mix of hope and fear of starvation, not unlike the chick at the end of Children Of Men. Before they close the door, on their way out, Bluejuice are releasing a retrospective record, ‘RETROSPECTABLE’, which pulls together all the best bits from their three albums, some brand new tunes, and some extra treats and pleasures. ‘RETROSPECTABLE’ starts with the release of the aptly title new single ‘I’LL GO CRAZY’. A high energy charge about reaching the end of your rope, with your partner, with your friends, with your family, with society at large, and mostly with yourself. Produced by Dann Hume (Sticky Fingers/Alpine). Co-written by Alex Burnett and Jake Stone. You can check it out here [LINK] They will head out on one final headline tour across the country RETROSPECTABLE: THE FAREWELL TOUR. The bands lap of honour so to speak. It will be Bluejuice’s destructive last hurrah, so catch them going out the only way they know how: deafeningly loud, a bit drunk, and dancing maniacally into the night. “Bursting with piano-led high energy pop recalling the likes of Steve Winwood and Stevie Wonder, Scissor Sisters and the Pointer Sisters”★★★★★ The West Australian “Ridiculously accomplished, immaculately crafted and instantly memorable” The Music Network “These jive turkeys have cracked the rhythmic code to your arse and built a funk-pop wall of sound around it” Rolling Stone Magazine BLUEJUICE “RETROSPECTABLE: The Farewell Tour “ With Special Guests To Be Announced Supported by triple j, The Music, Spotify Tickets On Sale August 9th THU 25 SEPT UNI BAR ADELAIDE SA (LIC/ALL AGES) Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au FRI 26 SEPT CAPITOL PERTH WA Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au SAT 27 SEPT RED EARTH ARTS FESTIVAL KARRATHA WA Tix: Avail via www.reaf.com.au THU 02 OCT HI FI BRISBANE QLD Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au FRI O3 OCT COOLANGATTA HOTEL COOLANGATTA QLD Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au SAT 04 OCT GREAT NORTHERN HOTEL BYRON BAY NSW Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au FRI 10 OCT HI FI MELBOURNE VIC Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au SAT 11 OCT HI FI MELBOURNE VIC (Under 18’s only Matinee show 12-3pm) Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au SAT 11OCT VILLAGE GREEN HOTEL MULGRAVE VIC Tix: Avail via www.ticketmaster.com & www.thevillagegreen.com.au SUN 12 OCT BARWON CLUB GEELONG VIC Tix: Avail via www.oztix.com.au FRI 17 OCT WAVES WOLLONGONG VIC Tix: Avail via www.moshtix.com.au SAT 18 OCT ANU BAR CANBERRA ACT Tix: Avail via www.ticketek.com THU 23 OCT BAR ON THE HILL NEWCASTLE NSW Tix: Avail via www.bigtix.com.au FRI 24 OCT METRO THEATRE SYDNEY NSW (LIC/ALL AGES) Tix: Avail via www.ticketek.com]]>
